Overview

Bournemouth come into the game in a buoyant mood following their 6-1 demolition of Hull City last weekend but will not have it easy when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at home on Saturday. Eddie Howe's team are unbeaten in their last three games and sit in 11th place at the moment and could move in to the top half if they pick up points against Spurs.

Jack Wilshere is likely to start for the Cherries, as he continues to build fitness, and the on loan Arsenal midfielder could be subject to a harsh reception from the traveling fans owing to his allegiance to the Gunners.

Tottenham will go top of the Premier League table if they win at Dean Court as they currently sit just one point behind leaders Manchester City, and it will also ensure that they remain the only unbeaten team in the league thus far. Mauricio Pochettino's side have established themselves as one of the title contenders this season after beating Manchester City 4-1 at White Hart Lane earlier in the season, and will be favourites going into the game against the Cherries.

Harry Kane is still not available for selection as he has just returned to training as is Toby Alderweireld, who suffered a knee injury during their draw against West Bromwich Albion last weekend. Danny Rose is also a doubt, but the manager revealed that a late decision will be made with regard to the England international.

What Managers Say

Eddie Howe: "It's important we go into any game feeling confidence and the players are certainly feeling that at the moment. This is a really good test of where we're at as Tottenham I thought were excellent against us in both games last season. They're very impressive in terms of their attitude towards the game, their work-rate, their team spirit is obvious and they are very well coached."

Mauricio Pochettino: "It has to be a big motivation for us, to finish the game and be top of the table. It's impossible to be in a better place. Our players are conscious of that and the atmosphere on the training ground is very good. But first we need to win the game, against a very good team with a great manager. Eddie Howe and I share a lot of values and principles and for that I am happy to see how they have developed their game and how they play."
